Who knew they would force Rochester to actually play us??? I doubt we will EVER see any of the eastern conference cowards out here again since that one year the almighty P Bruins, who were destroying everyone in their conference, made the ill fated road trip where they only beat Rockford and lost to all the other Western Conference teams they played on the road.

Also, we see San Antonio the opening home weekend and then not again for the rest of the year.

It is easier for me to travel 5 miles to the Bradley Center versus the 690 miles to Rochester for a game at the BCA.

Milwaukee is kind of the same way with Abby on the road.

Are you suggesting that the Eastern teams can't win if they don't get to sleep at home at night? Pretty funny, Tommy!

I am saying that if they have to travel more than 250 miles they miss their mommies.......

It would be nice to have Atlanta and at least one other city like Memphis in the league.
